1.)Begin by loosening the lug nuts on both front tires. Raise the unit, using a suitable lifting device or procedure, until the front tires are off the ground. If using a floor jack with stands, chock the rear wheels to prevent the unit from rolling. If using jack stands, make sure the stands are placed under the frame and not the body. Make sure the unit is stable and secure . 2.)Remove the tires / wheels. NOTE: Now is a good time to check the threads on the lug studs. Check for rust, pulled threads or other deterioration that could cause a stud/thread failure. 3.) The first thing to do is remove the front cowl and trunk on the bike. You can accomplish this by removing all the bolts (screws) around the perimeter of the cowl and removing some plastic “snap rivets”. To remove the rivets simply pull the center section up and then the rest will follow. 4.)Place a floor jack, or other suitable device, beneath the left side lower control arm. This is to prevent damage to the tie rod or slip yoke boot while disassembling the lower control arm and strut. Using a 14mm socket, remove the two retaining nuts and lock washers on the top of the struts. 5.)Leaning the strut forward toward the headlamp buckets will put the strut in position to allow you to reach over the top and place the strut spacer in place. Install the strut spacer on top of the coil retainer and tightening the nuts. Install the supplied gasket on top of the strut spacer, and re-install the strut assembly

1) It is mandatory to use blue Loc-tite on all bolts. We promise they will come loose if you don’t. 2) Remove the large nut and washer that holds your triple clamp on. Install the new nut that we provide which has HEX drive facing UP. You will NOT use the stock washer. 3) Torque the new nut to your factory recommended setting as they vary. Normally a minimum of 50-80 ft lbs. 4) Install the new triple clamp damper mount (TC mount) over the new triple clamp nut with the “machined register” (the small knub) indexing into the matching groove on the top, back of your stock triple clamp. The knub insures the mount cannot spin should the damper try to loosen the main nut. 5) Be sure this TC mount is setting down flush on the triple clamp surface all the way around. This part is machined precisely to fit over the Scotts triple clamp nut. The groove machined into the nut is positioned so once the set screws are tightened, it will suck the TC mount down against your triple clamp. Remove any obstructions that would not allow the TC mount to sit flush against your stock triple clamp surface. 6) Tip to save time: Before installation, using Loc-tite start all the setscrews first, until flush with the inside bore. 7) Using blue loc-tite on the setscrews, run them all in against the nut equally and then proceed to tighten each one making your way around until they are all equally tight. They should be checked after the first ride as normally they will settle into the groove in the nut and require tightening. 8) (Note: You must use some heat to compromise the Loc-tite before trying to remove the setscrews or the small Allen head setscrews can be stripped easily). 9) Remove the two, stock-front tank retaining bolts. You will replace these with longer ones in the kit. 10) Install the new “frame bracket tower”. There is a front and back to this part, note the picture! 11) Install the longer tank bolts supplied, through our frame bracket and into your tank mounting holes. 12) Grease the tower pin and drop it in the tower pin hole. It is designed to “float” and requires no retaining devices. Keep the tower pin and hole portion greased lightly. 13) Install the damper using the (2) 6×20 Allens. The link arm slot aligns with the flats on the tower pin. 14) Read your damper manual for initial settings on the controls. The damper is infinitely adjustable and totally up to the user to find their preference. Start with softer (counter clockwise) settings. Normally where we set the unit is a good starting point, usually 8 clicks out on the base valve. 15) The base valve controls the immediate feel of damping forces exerted

(DO NOT TIGHTEN) 2) Slide the 1 ½ T-bolt clamp over the front cylinder head pipe. 3) Install the new Y pipe and muffler using the stock fasteners. Align the muffler with the rear mount point on the frame. (DO NOT TIGHTEN). 4) Tighten all clamps and fasteners starting with the two flange nuts at the exhaust port and working back to the muffler. 5) Re-install the stock heat shield. (NOTE: only 2 fasteners will be used to install the heat shield to the new system. Make sure to use medium strength Loctite on the 2 fasteners when installing). 6) Start and check for leaks then re-install all body panels. IMPORTANT: After a short test ride, check and retighten all fasteners as necessary. CLEANING & MAINTENANCE The Mudslinger system is manufactured from stainless steel and aluminum. Stainless steel is used for its high strength at high temperatures and resistance to corrosion. The aluminum is used for it’s weight and strength. Before you run your new SuperTrapp MudSlinger for the first time, clean all grease, fingerprints, and dirt from the entire system. (A good glass cleaner works well.) A clean, grease-free surface will allow even coloration. Over time, the MudSlinger will begin to take on a gold tint. The coloration will be relatively even throughout the entire system. The hotter you get the system, the darker it will become. Due to the unique properties of these materials, the care of the MudSlinger is minimal. The following instructions should be followed to maintain your MudSlinger muffler

1. Place motorcycle on solid, level ground and on center stand if equipped. 2. Remove your turn signal lens. Place it upside down and clean the lens interior with the supplied alcohol wipe. Allow to completely air dry. Note: the LEDs are mounted to the inside of the turn signal lens with the LEDs making direct contact with the lens. The supplied silicone is used to secure the LED board to the lens. It remains flexible but can be removed. Test fit the board in your lens prior to using silicone. 3. Using a small screwdriver, poke a small hole in the end of the tube of silicone. Place a dab of silicone on each of the 12 LEDs on the circuit board. CAUTION : Note the position of the metal pins on the back of the LED board, They must be located 90 degrees from where the holes are that secure the lens to the housing. See attached diagram. 4. Position the round circuit board over the inside of your turn signal lens with the LEDs facing down. Get the board as centered as possible. Allow the silicone to make contact with the inside of the lens and then push down and slightly rotate the board back and forth to allow the LEDs to make contact with the lens surface. Repeat other side. NOTE : the silicone will require 30 minutes in 70 degree weather to tack up. Full cure will occur within 24 hours. We suggest not riding for several hours if possible to allow the best adhesion. 5. You will need to access the following wires; running light (license plate can be used), brake lights, right turn and left turn. Disassemble the bike as needed to gain access to the wiring

Remove and place the lower fairings in a safe place, to separtate them unhook the rivet at the bottom. The right side lower fairing will need to be trimmed for proper exhaust clearance. Remove the fairing knee panels. Two rubber grommets retain the panel after bolt removal, light force is required to pull panel off. Remove the tank cover. Four rubber grommets and two plastic hooks retain the panel after bolt removal, pull outward to remove from grommets then pull forward and up, light force is required. Remove mid fairing sides. Undo pushpin located on the fairing backside. Note: Blinker connectors must be disconnected before pulling the fairing too far. Remove the left and right muffl ers. Remove the stock header. Note: Be careful not to damage the radiator while removing the stock header and installing the new header leaving the fl ange nuts loose at this time. Install both collectors 7-40020 and 7-40022 holding them to the headers install the four springs 7-30002 from the header to collector spring tabs. Install collector 7-40014 by installing two springs 7-30002 from collector to collector spring tabs. Note: A small amount of WD-40 at the pipe joints will help to fi t them together. Install the megaphone on the header assembly using one of the original muffl er mounting bolts and nuts removed in step 6, mount the megaphone to the forward muffl er mount located at the footpeg. Tighten the header nuts and then remove the megaphone. At this point the right side lower fairing needs to be trimmed. A template is supplied (Page 4) to outline the clearance cut that is needed on the right side lower fairing, we recommend using a dremel tool or a die grinder. The template should give you the necessary clearance but some fi tments may vary. After making the cut lightly sand the edges being careful not to scratch the paint. Clean all fi ngerprints from the exhaust using contact cleaner (or other non fl ammable cleaner). Fingerprints will leave stains on the pipe once the motorcycle is started. Try a test fi t. If you feel more clearance is needed, mark the fairing and remove it, trim until there is at least a 1/4″ of clearance. Reinstall the megaphone and check that the O2 plug is tight. You are now ready to start your motorcycle. Check for exhaust leaks and oil leaks. Shut off the bike and re check the oil level

After bike is cool make sure the bike is secured before beginning the installation. 2 Remove the rear exhaust heat shield/cover from the OEM muffler. Remove the side fairing covers on both sides of the bike (this will allow you access to the seat bolts). Remove the rider seat. 3 Remove the exhaust valve cables located under the seat. Keep the servo motor plugged in (do not unplug the server motor). See figure 2. 4 Unbolt the rear foot peg muffler mount, loosen the assembly mount (header collector clamp) and unbolt the exhaust mounting bolt (figure 3). Remove the stock muffler assembly with the exhaust valve cables. Re-install the seat, seat bolts, and side fairings. 5 Apply a small amount of high temperature silicone (such as Permatex Ultra Black) to the inside of the exhaust inlet. 6 Attach the LOR exhaust canister to the slip-on tube adapter with the spring tabs aligned (make sure your hands are protected with a pair of gloves in case the tubes slip). You may have to squeeze the mid-pipe adapter tube to fit into the exhaust inlet as the mandrel bends may become slightly out of round due to a cut near the bend (the tube will take form once connected). Slide the canister all the way until the slip-on adapter seats fully against the exhaust inlet. Wipe off any excess silicone. 7 Place each spring over the exhaust side spring tabs and use the spring tool to pull the springs over the adapter spring tabs. Both springs must be secured for proper installation. 8 Apply a small amount of silicone sealer (such as permatex Ultra Black or Ultra Copper) to the inside (inlet side) of the slip-on adapter. Slide the low profile barrel clamp over the LevelOne Adapter pipe. Slide the slip-on adapter pipe over the stock header collector. Do not fully tighten the barrel clamp
